A heartbroken girl. A fierce warrior. A hero in the making.

Sixteen years ago the Kingdom of Winter was conquered and its citizens enslaved, leaving them without magic or a monarch. Now, the Winterians’ only hope for freedom is the eight survivors who managed to escape, and who have been waiting for the opportunity to steal back Winter’s magic and rebuild the kingdom ever since.

Orphaned as an infant during Winter’s defeat, Meira has lived her whole life as a refugee, raised by the Winterians’ general, Sir. Training to be a warrior—and desperately in love with her best friend, and future king, Mather — she would do anything to help her kingdom rise to power again.

So when scouts discover the location of the ancient locket that can restore Winter’s magic, Meira decides to go after it herself. Finally, she’s scaling towers, fighting enemy soldiers, and serving her kingdom just as she’s always dreamed she would. But the mission doesn’t go as planned, and Meira soon finds herself thrust into a world of evil magic and dangerous politics – and ultimately comes to realize that her destiny is not, never has been, her own.

My Review:

So as most of you know I don’t review DNF books but since this is a TBR List pick I wanted to at least tell you what happened.

I really, really, really wanted to like this book and I stayed till about 68% but it was just info dump and no story, I kept reading hoping a story would appear but it never did. I can honestly tell you as I type this I already forgot the Main Characters name. Most of the info that was dumped on me I was so confused by because it really was just to much at once. If it was spread throughout the book I think I wouldn’t have minded as long as some sort of story was also involved but it just wasn’t happening. This book has such amazing reviews it just did not work at all for me.

Hope you have a great day and Happy Reading!

    • A lot of people loved this book, I just thought it had to much info and 68% in it was still dumping. Wasn’t going to stick around until the story actually started 🙁
